Shannon Gwin Mitchell,

COG is pleased to announce that Dr. Shannon Mitchell, along with Co-Investigators Drs. Steven Carswell and Jan Grycznski, has received a grant award from the National Institutes of Health – National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) entitled “Computerizing NIAAA’s Best Practices for Youth Screening and Brief Intervention.” This study is a Phase I, Small Business Technology Transfer award that seeks to translate key elements in the NIAAA’s Practitioner’s Guide for pediatric alcohol misuse to a computerized web- and mobile-compatible format. A computerized version of this Guide could dramatically enhance its practical utility for clinicians, thereby increasing the number of youth who receive high-quality alcohol screening and appropriate intervention.
